Good work, HTC! You managed to solve the RAM puzzle, didn't you?

After announcing last Tuesday that HTC Desire is not qualified for an Android 2.3 update, the company suddenly changed their mind. It appears that they were able to solve the RAM puzzle eventually, and they will be rolling out the Gingerbread in the future.

As it turns out, the people’s voice matter, and the enormous pressure generated from last Tuesday’s statement made HTC to reconsider. At least, they were able to find a reason to keep the Desire on the market, rather than ditch the handset for dead. Well done, HTC!

Just keep it posted here at All We Like to check when will HTC Desire get its Android 2.3 update.
